Houston we have a drink problem

The BBC reports:
A panel reviewing health issues at Nasa has found that US astronauts have been allowed to fly while intoxicated at least twice, an aviation magazine says.
See Aviation Week for the full story.

Lord Bonkers adds: There was never any question of This Sort Of Thing when Raymond Baxter became the first Englshman in space in 1953. He enjoyed the occasional pint of good ale, like many of his countrymen, but the fellows at Woomera never saw him the worse for drink.
